Mississippi Car Accidents
Being injured in a car accident is difficult and scary. You may be forced into the hospital for days, weeks, or even months in order to recover from your injuries.
In Mississippi, serious injury crashes happen every day. People suffer injuries every day that require medical attention. A serious cause of injuries and death, auto accidents are among the top ten reasons people get hurt or killed in the United States.
When you are hurt in a car wreck, you should always consider whether the accident was your fault or someone else’s. If you believe it was the fault of another person, you need the help of a personal injury lawyer.

Driver negligence is a leading cause of auto accidents throughout the country. Currently, one of the most common causes of car wrecks in Mississippi is speeding. In the United States, driver error causes more than 90% of the auto collisions reported. Driver distraction, intoxication, and fatigue are three leading types of driver negligence.
